He had parts in 36 feature films and over 60 television show, mainly westerns in the role of a native american. He was one of the first native american actors to play native american roles and is best remembered for his performance as black eagle in the 1970 film a man called horse. Chaps have been worn and are in good condition.
Horse hair fringe is delicate due to age. There is wear and stains due to use. There no rips or tears and can still be worn today, but would advise to just add your collection as they are rare. Chaps are fringed with bleached horsehair.
